About Ayurveda

Ayurveda uses a variety of methods that enable an individual to rid his/herself of disease. Even simple shifts in food selection, cooking methods and spices according to one’s Ayurvedic constitution yield dramatic improvements.

Ayurveda also uses herbs, Yoga, breathing practices, meditation, Ayurvedic bodywork, warm oil treatments and cleansing therapies with the conviction that if you give the body the right conditions, it has a powerful capacity to return to health. Every cell has inherent intelligence; that is the power of healing from within.

Ayurveda is a complete understanding of all aspects of life. It is an engaging guide for maintaining optimum health as we navigate all of the twists and turns of life.

 

Atma Ayurveda in the Media

A powerful Triad
Ayurveda, Yoga, and Jyotish (Vedic Astrology) share similar roots. Independently, each could be considered a complete system itself in addition to a life study.  At Atma Ayurveda, I use Ayurveda primarily and integrate the others. People come for physical healing from the effects of stress and disease and leave with much more.
Together, they form an even more powerful triad, offering effective guidelines for all aspects of life, from health to psychology to spirituality.
Fun facts about these vedic sciences
Language:
That’s the one that looks like calligraphy with lots of curly-que’s and perfectly metered lines putting Shakespeare to shame.
Age:
Old. really, really old. 2000+ years old. So old it is said that the knowledge was ‘remembered’ rather than invented or discovered. Which means it is in all of us and always has been.
East meets West:
Historically subdued by conquerors and colonialists, Ayurveda, Yoga and Jyotish are experiencing a revival. Meanwhile, more and more westerners find them to be effective in making changes in their lives. I commonly hear clients and students say they come because Ayurveda feels intuitive and familiar, just as relevant to modern times and their lives as their Indian peers.

Brigitte

THERAPIST AT ATMA AYURVEDA

In 1999, Brigitte started her practice as pedicure and foot reflexologist, where she specializes in treating diabetic and rheuma patients. Then in 2005 Brigitte finished a sports massage study, followed by connective tissue massage and manual lymphatic drainage massage. To gain more knowledge of food habits and lifestyle that she observed to influence her patients so much, Brigitte followed the Ayurvedic Practitioner course at the Academy of Ayurvedic Studies (now Delight Academy; HBO level including Medischebasiskennis). Her internship topic was skin diseases and Vata-management. She has since assisted visiting physician Dr. Shailesh Muli from Pune, India for 3 weeks with Pancha Karma treatments. Brigitte also blends Ayurveda and medical pedicure in her Almere practice where she gives consultations and treatments, and Ayurvedic workshops.
